About this property

Originally built for the lighthouse keepers of St Abbs, this delightful traditional end-terrace stone-built cottage is a very special retreat for the nature lover, being in a wonderful position beside St Abbs Head National Nature Reserve and surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is access to the nature reserve directly from the cottage and St Abbs village is a short half mile walk or drive away. The cottage provides comfortable, cosy accommodation and is a great base for walking, cycling or touring this lovely area of Berwickshire. The A1 is just 4 miles away, giving excellent access to the Scottish Borders and the Northumberland Coast. Boat trips and fishing are also available locally. EPC Rating: Band G

St. Abbs is a pretty fishing village located just over the border into Scotland on a beautiful stretch of Berwickshire coastline. The village has a delightful harbour and fishermen's cottages scattered on the hillside and the St. Abbs Head Nature Reserve nearby is home to a rich variety of wildlife and is a popular destination for bird watchers. The area also has some beautiful walks, with the Cheviots, Scottish Borders and the stunning coastline all offering opportunities for walking. A safe, sandy beach is located under a mile away in Coldingham. The shops, museum and castle of the historic fortified Border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed are within reach, as well as Holy Island, the seaside villages of Craster, Eyemouth and Seahouses and the picturesque Farne Islands which are all an easy drive away. The lively capital city of Edinburgh is less than 50 miles away, and well worth a visit.
